- R/2003/185 - Rear Seat Belts May Not Engage Correctly - Rear Seat Belt may not engage correctly
- R/2004/094 - Possibility Of Reduced Braking Efficiency - Premature wear of the Sensatronic Brake Control (SBC) unit may lead to a reduced braking efficiency
- R/2005/056 - Brake Pedal May Require More Effort Than Expected - In isolated cases it is possible for vibrations within the vehicle to in turn vibrate the wiring harness connected to the Sensotronic Brake Control unit. This causes the internal contacts within the unit to suffer abrasion and subsequent resistance increase. The resultant affect is that more effort will be required on the brake pedal to stop the vehicle.
- R/2005/134 - Brake Pedal May Require More Effort Than Expected - Problems may occur with the Sensotronic Brake Control (SBC) hydraulic unit that could affect the input required by the driver to stop the vehicle.
- R/2006/046 - Engine May Revert To Limp Home Mode - The differential pressure sensor for the diesel particulate filter can fail due to contamination of the protective gel layer by exhaust gases. This will result in the car reverting to limp home mode (restricted engine speed).
